Ayesha Group
In this Group: Ayesha, Shehnaz
Ayesha, a 48-year-old hardworking and diligent woman, lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her husband and seven children. Her husband is a laborer whose income is insufficient to pay the school fees of the children and meet the household expenses. Ayesha is helping her husband by selling milk, yogurt, and butter from her home to other people in the suburbs.

She has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan to buy large quantities of milk and other dairy products from the village to resell in the city for profit. With the anticipated profits, she will pay her children's school fees and save for the future.

Ayesha wants to live a happy and peaceful life with her family, and dreams of having her own house. She is very thankful to BRAC Pakistan and Kiva for their support.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
